LEGALLY COPYING INFO ON THE INTERNETgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Public Domain Resources : One Thread
I want to copy and use information from the internet on a particular subject to put into a booklet I intend on selling, but I don't want to infringe on any copyright laws. How do I know what info I can and cannot copy? For instance, could I go through text from chats, web forums, etc. to retrieve whatever I want? Also, I have heard that any text even if it is under a copyright, may be "copied" if it is not copied word-for-word and instead, the re-written version would be an INTERPRETATION of the original copyright version. Is this true? Thanks for the help!!! K.J.
